Team Spider was formed as a punk band several years ago in New York City. They immediately stood out from other local bands in many ways: including... Their celebration of cycling (particularly critical mass bike rides), their extensive use of video (a weekly Manhattan access TV show / viral videos ), their lack of ageism ( their original lyricist was an 80 year old man who performed alongside them up until his 2006 passing ), their love of alternative venues ( park shows, machine shops, boats )

NBC soon produced a viral documentary about Team Spider which has been a top 10 viral video at dozens of sites ranging from youtube to ivillage.

Team Spider's own Widely Popular Blog / VLOG ( ) documents the ongoing difficulties facing NYC bicyclists as the police and city slowly adjust to the rise in popularity of cycling. ( including videos of police chasing band members through the streets of NYC and even into their own homes ).

Team Spider frequently has their friends / co-conspirators appear LIVE on the Access Show and Webisodes... including; MATT AND KIM, JAPANTHER, AN ALBATROSS, JELLO BIAFRA, CHOKING VICTIM, BAD BRAINS and many more....

TEAM SPIDER's toured Europe, The US, and the Airwaves, all on their own terms. D.I.Y., independent, and sustainable,,, they are the future of rock.
